Servings: Serves 4

Cook Time: 13 minutes

Prep Time: 28 minutes


32/3 tablespoon Olive oil
1 each Sweet onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Minced garlic
1/3 cup Fresh cilantro leaves
3 tablespoon Cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt,
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Black pepper, freshly ground
4 each Boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Grilled chicken gets a tropical makeover thanks to this fragrant, garlic-based mojito. Use extra-virgin olive oil for added flavor and color in the sauce. This chicken goes well with pasta or rice, both of which readily soak up any extra mojito. May be frozen and halved.
1. Preheat grill to medium-high. While grill heats, prepare mojito sauce. In a heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauti until softened slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
2. In food processor or blender, pulse cilantro with vinegar and lemon, lime, and orange juices until leaves are coarsely chopped. Add onion mixture, salt, sugar, and pepper, and pulse until smooth. Pour sauce into small serving bowl or gravy boat. May be served slightly warm or at room temperature.
3. Prepare chicken. Brush each breast with oil and grill over direct heat for 4 minutes on each side. Place breasts on individual plates and slice diagonally into 8 slices. Drizzle generously with mojito sauce, serving extra sauce on the side. Garnish with sprigs of cilantro.
